The Elihu Burritt Library’s OER team is happy to share their newly published April ’21 edition of the Open @ CCSU newsletter, where you can find: resources to help you locate, evaluate, and create OER; an announcement about the upcoming (free) Northeast OER Summit; results of the U.S. PIRG’s Fixing the Broken Textbook Market survey; and more.

We hope to showcase faculty’s experiences with OER in future issues. Please contact Joy Hansen, Jillian Maynard, or Sharon Clapp to discuss!
